Joshua founded Magna while still in college, from a desk at the foot of his bed. Since then, he has converted the small loan that began it all into a leading global investment firm, with hundreds of millions invested since its inception. Joshua credits his success to his commitment to keeping an open mind and aligning himself with people whose big, bold ideas demonstrate tremendous potential. Magna’s growth comes from reinvesting profits, allowing the company to remain independent so it can continue to seek out and invest in unconventional opportunities.
As a leader, Joshua believes that when employees are encouraged to think creatively, good things happen. That’s why he promotes an open, collaborative culture, with a dual emphasis on courageous ideas and rigorous discipline in the market.
In addition to his work at Magna, Joshua is an accomplished musician. Signed to various recording, production and management deals when he was a teenager, Joshua continues to write, record and produce music. He brings this passion for creative expression into the office every day, fueling Magna’s growth.
He is a significant donor to the Mid Island Y Jewish Community Center in Plainview, New York, among other causes, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with Distinctive Honors from Hofstra University, earning a BBA in Entrepreneurship with a focus in Finance.
